I remember a time when I was younger and did not understand the concept of death. Until people I knew started dying … older, age-mates and others even younger than I. Then I suddenly began to notice my mortality and started to question my life and what it all meant.
Growing up is realizing that some people are just who they are; you can either accept and tolerate them as such or get so freaking mad when you see their face or hear their name. The choice is yours. Sometimes, you hope they change, but that rarely happens.
Growing up is having your illusions of almost everything sacred broken … and having to sort through the pieces … As you try to make sense out of it with the hope that you have picked one or two useful fragments from the pile of pieces.
Growing up for me has being anti-climactic. Yes, I can now come home much later, but I also have to buy personal items out of my pocket money which I believe is a travesty that should be addressed.
Growing up can either mean you decide to be less selfish and embrace people and their shitty personalities or just become more selfish by thinking about only yourself and the person(s) you love maybe.
Growing up is getting a shitty nine-to-five-job with equally shitty pay and going there everyday of the week because, well, shitty money is much better than no money.

Growing up is knowing when to drop your weapons and when to pick them up, that is if you ever get the chance.
Growing up is change. And change is good even though it is shitty. And like many shitty things, we have no other options than to grab our helmet and plough through the shit! Because growing up is shitty!

Approximately 20 years ago, RED crashed into planet Earth from Mars. She was meant to crash into yankee, but somehow ended up in Nigeria.
